    I must be thinking of some other case then because I thought the dude was blasted on while his hands were in the air.

    He won't have to cover anything. No one in the media will call him on anything he has said.

    Even eye witnesses are not telling the same story so it would be prudent to wait until the trial occurs and even the officer gets a chance to tell his side of the story. "Pig should fry" is no better than what you seem to believe happened.

    There is too much noise to draw any conclusions about this case. It is a tragedy for all involved. What ever happened Brown shouldn't have been shot as he was...the police AND the protesters over reacted.
    Beyond that there is too much smoke to draw conclusions. I'm not defending the shooting or the actions of the police...nor is there a reason to accept the violence caused in the riots.

    Gilbert Arenas with some hot sports opinions about this situation:

    http://www.vibe.com/Gilbert-Arenas-Criticize-Al-Sharpton

    “I would like to start off by saying too the family of the victim GOD BLESS#RIPmichealbrown you will be missed: too EVERY African American out there..how dumb are we really???every time we hear some bad news, the first thing we do is #RIOT #ROB #STEAL #BURN sh-t in our OWN neighborhoods..this racism fight has never been #blackvswhite, it’s ALWAYS been #blackvsblack from what the stats.. About 10 riots from the black community over the years and the only thing damaged ,was the BLACK COMMUNITY by The BLACK COMMUNITY..only reason they issue riot police isssss just in case you actually got smart enough to walk 6 blocks ,YALL ain’t f-cking up white rich sh-t smdh”

    “FAMILiES of the victims pleaseeeeee stop asking #alsharpton to speak or ur behalf,you have a better chance having #caesar the monkey from #planetoftheapes to get justice for you..the stats also show AL coon sharpton has not helped one situation he has protested at,he actually made it worst and because of him the jury goes the other way..(think about it) Jena six,trayvon and the list goes back way back..#AL ur like a #THOT in the club,lookn for attention what u said at trayvons rally #enoughisenough ur right were tired of u PRETENDING”


    Wow he is not afraid of the backlash. Twitter apologies to follow??

    So if a cop shot a man in the head while the man's hands were up in the air the pig shouldn't fry?

    Pay attention. The issue is that we have only heard one side of the story. Only the friends of Brown are talking to the media. You are running with allegations like they were facts.
